Villa Wellspacher is a historic Mansion built in the 1890s. It was the 49th house on Semmering, a prestigious weekend location for wealthy Viennese and aristocrats alike. Once operated by a Hungarian doctor as a health retreat which specialised in the clean water and fresh air on Semmering, Villa Wellspacher was well known as the Vecaj Villa for many years. A painting of this can be admired in the Alte Leopoldsapotheke in the 1st district of Vienna and the house has also been featured in a book titled "Semmering Architektur: Villenarchitektur am Semmering." by Guenther Buchinger. Recent reconstruction and restoration resulted in what today is known as Villa Wellspacher, named after the original owner and founder after which a neighbouring street on Semmering has also been named.

Interaction with guests
In order to arrange for a personal check in experience we would kindly request you to let us know at what time we can expect you to arrive. One person is always around and available to assist however privacy is maintained due to the size of the house. For this reason we would kindly ask you to simply give us a call if you need anything during your stay.
Although smoking is not permitted in most of the house in order to maintain its freshness this can be done in the recreation and party room areas and of course on the terrace. The size of the house allows for excellent privacy and although we are very easy going we would kindly ask you to consider the other guests if present and try to keep it down and of course not to damage anything. Small pets are accepted at an extra charge to cover deep cleaning.

After many years of studying hotel/hospitality and tourism management leading to many more years in the 5* hotel industry I finally decided to steer my career into the direction of international travel whilst maintaining my passion for hotels and hospitality by opening and managing the wonderful Villa Wellspacher located in Semmering, Austria. Currently I do this as well as manage my bespoke travel website, both with a passion for delivering outstanding service but maintaining the personality which leads to a more comfortable, easy going but high standard relationship with my clients and guests. Villa Wellspacher's moto is your home away from home which makes me feel like it completely fits in with the whole airbnb idea but still offer an exceptional temporary home to others unlike any other. As for the 5 things I can't live without I think that would be my laptop, phone (both with internet access please!!) makeup and handbag with wallet (do I sound sad?). My favourite travel destinations are anywhere I haven't yet been with exception of my favourite places to return over and over again (Vancouver, California and of course Semmering!) and as for movies and books etc I go to the cinema once a week (yes, I have an unlimited card and make great use of it), don't really have the attention span for a good book unless it really is exceptional (the last one that I was able to see through was the Alchemist and then Zahir by Paul Coelho and then Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami) and I'll listen to whatever I feel like at the time so this will also vary with my mood ;P My moto for life: sometimes what you want is not necessarily what is best for you so just trust life and what it has in store for you, it will take you places you would have never even dreamed about and even the hard things make us stronger and more of a person, where there's a down there will be an up so don't give up! My style of traveling: I live and breath luxury but also love adventure and even a good deal and there's no reason why you can't have it all!
